It is a strong possibility. Turn off the supply lines and see if the water stops leaking.

Thanks JW, I will check it out tonight... I'm pretty sure it stopped leaking when I turned off the water supply.

Un-plug machine to see if the water stops.

no ? clogged / sticky Water Inlet Valve
(maybe from sediment, maybe could be flushed out)

Holy Cow! You guy's are awesome! So much info...so fast.... OK...So, we ran a few loads of cloths and the water stopped dripping. I suspect the valve was stuck oopen from sediment, like you said......Thanks guys, I will be back when I need further assistance.
